There are two methods of funding open to you
1) All children over the age of three are entitled to at least 15 hours free funding per week, up to 570 hours over the year for the start of the funding period following their birthday. Funding periods start on 1 January, 1 April and 1 September
2) If funding is not eligible or additional hours are being taken then fees are paid directly at the cost of £4:00 per hour.
The funding forms for claiming your free entitled hours are handed out towards the end of each term and need to be back before the term ends so that you are able to claim your free entitled hours.
We recognise that the forms can be confusing to complete the first time you receive one and so have a completed example in each setting. This guide from Hampshire may be useful for you to follow.
